Toro says its Groundsmaster 3200/3300 mower offers various new features that could benefit governments, such as lower cost of ownership, easier operation, and improved performance and maneuverability.
Toro senior product marketing manager Tony Ferguson said the new product is also easier to service.
“It doesn’t take a lot of maintenance, and when routine maintenance is required, it’s pretty easy to access the machine for that maintenance,” Ferguson said. “It reduces the number of maintenance hours required to keep it in operation.”
Quicker, More Comfortable Work
The product, which replaces Toro’s Groundsmaster 3280, features a 37.4 hp (27.9 kW) or 24.7 hp (18.4 kW) diesel engine, and Groundsmaster decks the company says can help operators work quickly in tough terrain.
Toro also highlights features that could help improve operators’ comfort level, which include an adjustable suspension seat and steering column, fingertip engine controls, and optional all-season cab. For more ease of routine maintenance, Toro features a tilt-up deck design that can help make blade maintenance and deck cleaning simpler.
The company is highlighting the product’s CrossTrax all-wheel drive system, which can provide power through challenging conditions. The system distributes power to each wheel individually.
The four new models are:
● Groundsmaster 3200 - 24.7hp (18.4kW) 2WD
● Groundsmaster 3200 - 24.7hp (18.4kW) with CrossTrax 4WD
● Groundsmaster 3300 - 37.4hp (27.9kW) with CrossTrax 4WD
● Groundsmaster 3310 - 37.4hp (27.9kW) with CrossTrax 4WD and All-Season Cab
The higher 37.4 hp is new for the Groundsmaster 3300 and 3310. The previous-version Groundsmaster 3280 did not offer that higher horsepower.
The models feature different capabilities for winter or other seasonal work, and special attachments such as a snow thrower, rotary sweeping broom, snow blade, and a Toro-made “pro-force blower” that will include a flail attachment.
